FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nashville, TN: Fannie Battle Day Home for Children is proud to announce its involvement as a pilot site for the state’s new Family Empowerment Program, launched in partnership between The Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) and United Way of Metropolitan Nashville (UWMN). This new partnership will use a two-generation framework to provide services to Fannie Battle families. The two agencies, along with pilot partners such as Fannie Battle, will co-design the two-generation framework through a public-private partnership where families will receive holistic, wraparound services in under-resourced communities.

Services will focus on education, upward economic mobility, health indicators, community engagement, workforce readiness, and financial literacy. The two-generation partnership is a part of the department’s 2G for Tennessee strategy which has a specific focus on partnering with parents and children together to improve the whole family’s well-being while building cycles of success.

“Fannie Battle Day Home has a 125+ year history of supporting the children and families of Nashville. This new partnership will allow us to further deliver on our mission by engaging the entire family and providing individualized care needed for success. This new model will enable our families to make positive changes that will impact generations to come,” said Melanie Shinbaum, Executive Director of Fannie Battle Day Home for Children.
